Blog Carnival – Smile for the Camera

Henry Russell and Josiah Wistar Worthington

Henry Russell and Josiah Wistar Worthington

Henry Russell Worthington (1887 – 1956) is my grandfather and Dr. Josiah Wister Worthington, Col. V.C., USA (1888 – 1953) is his younger brother.

There is a story about these two, along with their younger sister, that after their parents died, in Kansas, were shipped back to Pennsylvania by train in a baggage car. They were not met on arrival in Philadelphia and stayed at the police station until the three were picked up by family.

I am still looking for that newspaper article that told this story.
